It’s that time of year again…

February 17, 2009

Every year around this time I miss home so so much…The familiar voices somehow become so distant and routine takes over. Every year around this time we make plans for our summer getaway (we spend 3 weeks with my family). This year we have to put them on hold. Just the thought of it makes me sick. You see, my family lives far away from here…my parents and two sisters that is. I call them every week at least twice, just to hear their voices. I have lived here for almost 10 years now and part of me still doesn’t feel at home here. I wish I was able to live in both places for equal amount of time! I don’t know what it is, but when I am there, I feel at peace…the familiar smells, the streets, the beach, the food, the walks, the chats and jokes, the goodbyes and hellos…things I grew up with. I feel as living those moments over and over again, only makes me miss them more. The distance is a funny thing…

Can you relate to such feeling? Or is it just me?
